Here & There Podcast S02E12 - When the Mouse is Away - Feb. 24, 2016

February 24, 2016

Limousine service, VIP lounges, private's all part of the global worker life (well maybe it would be for Matt and Shel if they had a sponsor), right? Maybe it's more like bumpy roads, crowded terminals and cheap flights. Whatever it might be, the reality is that global workers travel more and more in order to reach, plant, equip and care. It can be a hard life for the road warriors but even harder for the spouse who stays behind to mind the fort.

On this special Here & There podcast, Sheldon talks with a global worker spouse who is used to staying behind while her husband is out saving the world. They talk about the struggles of being left behind, what they think their spouse is out doing and what they want when they get back home.
Bon voyage!

Here & There Podcast S02E11 - Milestones and Kidney Stones - Feb. 18, 2016

February 18, 2016

Happy double 20s Anna Armitage! Matt and Shel celebrate a Milestone birthday over there in Slovakia and start to reflect on celebrations, birthdays and the aging process. Do you get better or bitter with age? Do you know how to collect your old age pension? Do you know how to reinvent yourself? Does it even matter?

Plus we talk about something very serious...the Superbowl! Does anyone outside of Here even care about the fake "football?"
It's a lighter pod for a heavy subject...but of course we navigate it beautifully with our wit, charm and brilliance...oh yeah, Brenda Synagogue is on her way to Slovakia which means we do another "So you're getting a midtermer."
Enjoy the show!

Here & There Podcast S02E10 - The Right Way to School Your Kids - Feb. 9, 2016

February 9, 2016

Do you know what the five best things about being home-schooled are?

1. You're always the smartest kid in the class.
2. You always part of the 'in' crowd.
3. You never get bullied or teased for what you wear to school.
4. You never get homework (unless of course you view all of your school work as 'home'work).
5. You never have to stand in the rain waiting for the bus.
Of course the worst part is you have to ask your sister to the school dance...but some would say it's a small price to pay for the privilege of being schooled at home.
This week we do a Here & There first. Matt and Sheldon host an international panel of educational experts who try to convince us and each other about the BEST way to school your kids. We've got people from Asia, Africa, Eurasia and beyond who all have different views of education ranging from International Christian Schools, homeschooling, public school, private teachers and more.
We don't promise that this podcast will make you feel better about the choices you've made about your kid's education but then again, it probably won't make you feel any worse.
